NATSO Connect 2018 Is The Don't Miss Trucking Event

What is NATSO?

NATSO is the National Association of Truck Stop Owners and they are headquartered outside of Washington D.C. It’s their mission to advance the success of truckstop and travel plaza members by providing solutions to their challenges and by achieving the public policy goals of the truckstop and travel plaza industry.

They achieve this by advancing the industry’s interests by influencing government action and public opinion on matters such as highway commercialization, tolling, truck parking, environmental issues, and more.

Also, they provide access the knowledge resources to help members make informed business decisions.

How NATSO Connect Makes A Difference

One major way they spread knowledge is through NATSO Connect, which will be taking place from February 10th to February 13th in Nashville Tennessee at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center!

Hundreds of the best truckstop operators and industry partners come together as a huge, collaborative group that you can be included in! Everyone will share insights, the best practices to make ideas happen, discuss new innovative business ideas, and more.

There are a number of fun educational events you can attend. For example at 1 PM on February 10th, you can check out the Top Trends Disrupting the Truck Stop Industry.

This event will kick off the keynote speakers who will be discussing how in less than a decade heavy highway motor vehicles will consume 25% less diesel due to new federal regulations. Also, how 28% of retailers anticipate implementing robotics, cognitive computing and artificial intelligence (ai) within the next few years.

Then on February 11th at 12 PM you can check out Fleets Discuss the Autonomous and Electrical Truck Future. This keynote will take place on the show floor to discuss how quickly autonomous, connected, and electric trucks will arrive.

They will also discuss the possible effects they will have on the trucking and truck stop industries. Plus, while the speakers are discussing these topics and answering your questions you can actually make your own smores on an open fire. It will be a great time for a snack and a chat.

At 1:45 PM on February 13th you can end the conference at the Good To Great event. Keynote speakers will go over how to take your truck stop to the next level by being great at merchandising, truck stop branding layout, and truck stop food.
